Food-cobalamin absorption depends on the initial release of cobalamin from its binders in food. Therefore, the characterization of patients' gastric juices and their behavior in this process was undertaken. Pentagastrin-stimulated gastric juice specimens from three patients with severe food-cobalamin malabsorption, six patients with mild malabsorption, and five patients with normal ...

The gastroduodenal epithelium is covered by an adherent mucus layer into which bicarbonate is secreted by surface epithelial cells. This mucus-bicarbonate barrier is an important first line of defence against damage by gastric acid and pepsin, and has been demonstrated in all species including human. Similar to gastric acid secretion, ...

Morphofunctional alterations to the intestinal mucosa are influenced by three main factors: food, bilio-pancreatic secretions, intestinal hormones. In order to assess the importance of each one, histological and histochemical tests were performed on different segments of intestine taken from rats which were sacrificed one month after the following procedure: gastrojejunal ...
Honcharik N - - 1991
The high lipophilicity of cyclosporine A (CsA) and the importance of bile for its absorption suggest that food may alter the absorption of CsA. Food has been reported to have varied effects on the absorption of CsA. Study methodology may explain the conflicting reports. Factors which were not well controlled ...
Ewe K - - 1991
Enteric-coated tablets leave the stomach mainly during the interdigestive phase. Composition as well as time of ingestion of meals may influence their gastric emptying considerably. In 12 normal volunteers gastric emptying of a plastic tablet with a metal core was followed by a metal detector in relation to different compositions ...
Tamm A - - 1991
A representative sample of an adult population, earlier examined by gastroscopic biopsy, was subjected to correlation and regression analyses to quantitate the influences of different factors on the development of three dyspeptic complaints. In this study a large part of the complaints were incriminated by the subjects to poor tolerance ...

To determine the natural history of delayed gastric emptying of solid foods in anorexia nervosa (AN), gastric emptying was assessed by scintigraphy in 20 consecutive inpatients; eight had restrictive AN, ten had both AN and bulimia nervosa (BN), and two BN alone. Initial gastric half-emptying time (HET) exceeded 110 min ...
Goldschmiedt M - - 1990
Although food additives may have a significant impact on the marketing and acceptability of food and may occasionally lead to side effects, the effect of these additives on the digestive process in humans is unknown. We evaluated whether adding coloring or monosodium glutamate to food increases the cephalic phase of ...
Horowitz M - - 1990
Recent studies suggest that dexfenfluramine (D-fenfluramine), because of its pure serotonergic effect, may be a more potent anti-obesity agent, associated with fewer side-effects than the racemate DL-fenfluramine. The effect of dexfenfluramine on gastric emptying of a mixed solid and liquid meal was assessed with a double-isotope scintigraphic technique in eleven ...
